General Description

Normidia maintains a well-trained and well-equipped security bureau. This organization is known as the Varakai (pronounced Var-a-KYE). It is an ancient Irenni word which translates roughly as "seeing and unseen").  This organization is also informally called the "League of Watchers". These men and women have infiltrated governments and organizations across the realms at all levels. 

Agents of the Varakai conduct a wide range of operations. They monitor criminal activities within the nation, investigate mysteries and crimes and maintain an extensive spy network throughout Normidia and other nations. These spies monitor the internal activities of foreign governments and send that information back to the headquarters of the Varakai in Tykron. However, Varakai agents do sometimes carry out special assignments such as a theft or assassination. Some agents are assigned to serve as bodyguards to the King and other important figures in the kingdom. 

The Varakai is led by a reclusive noble by the name of Cellar Gedren. He answers directly to the King.

History

This relatively young organization was formed in 2713 CY when King Sendel Drachens ascended to the throne. It was formed to aid the King track political and military developments across Ithria. Although the organization has only been in existence for 3 years, 

Goals and Motivation

The Varakai are chiefly concerned with protecting Normidian officials and interests. They are fanatically loyal to King Drachens and his personal security supercedes all other concerns. This group will go to great lengths to accomplish any assigned mission. Assassination, poison, intimidation and kidnapping are all acceptable tools.

Allies and Enemies

As a branch of the Normidian government, the Varakai are allied with and sometimes work in conjunction with the Normidia military and navy. Virtually any non-Normidian group is a potential threat and could be considered an enemy. Although the Varakai do not actively make war against anyone.

Membership

The Varakai employ both men and women and a variety of races. Joining this group is difficult and those who wish to join are tested extensively. Training is extensive. Some agents are magically altered to infiltrate another race. The Varakai are renowned for the ability to bypass security and get at protected information or individuals. They are extremely well trained at stealth, deception, slight of hand, bluffing, thinking on their feet, and, when necessary, combat. A typical Varakai agent speaks five languages.
